    Thanks... Yes, thanks go to Alex, my greenery gal. And hey, Snowths, you're already dead. Somebody call Bo so we can move this dead body outta here.

    Oh, well then, Kathy, why didn't you say that? Now I just made myself out to be playful, flirtatious, unwilling to make commitments, and reluctant.

    Thanks you guys! I was surprised to see them too. Thank you Phillip so much! There are some characters I'm looking at doing. It will take a little while, but I think it is safe to say the Muppet Show cast is already complete so the new ones will likely be Sesame or Fraggle.

    Not that this would get voted-in, but would you guys prefer Fizgig (if I could swing him) or a Muppephone (totally swingable)?

    Personally - :coy: (my favorite because the character and emotion reminds me of my partner)
    :hungry: (just came out looking better than I thought)
    :shifty: (not my best work, but he emotes and Rizzo was much needed and requested)

    Maybe a Muppephone, because I'm afraid I'm not sure what a Fizgig is.:o

    Yeah... I'd vote for the Muppaphone too. Snowthmeister, check da' Wiki for Fizzgig buddy.

    Fizgig from "The Dark Crystal" that fuzzy pet that Dave Goelz performed. I'm thinking away from that now.

    I think we might be solid on any future smilies. Some will always want different ones, but I have ideas for four new ones that do not incude the Muppet Show cast of characters. I won't tell you the characters but I will say the four emotions I am considering to subit to the rest of the staff:

    Wise, Speechless, Scary, Busy.

    Without a true expression these are just tiny pictures. It's hard to get an emotion. The Swedish Chf and the Penguin are some of the nicer-looking ones but not the most expressive to the casual eye. I do so love how the Chef came out. :hungry: I know someone else was considered for hungry, but I wouldn't count that character out just yet. ;)

    Ooooh, if you like puppets and puppetry "The Dark Crystal" is a must! That film, along with "The Muppet Movie" tie for my favorite film. They are inspiring in so many ways. Crystal is a world before GGI when directors used beautiful matte paintings to create the scope of a world and every creature had to be puppeteered!

    I just got back from a run. Going to start work on the smilies!

    I'm sure we discussed this on here years back, and i know its not easy bein green, but why is Crazy Harry? lol. Not that he doesn't carry it off tremendously.

    Oh great... Now we have another ghost. Hmmm, maybe that'd be a good suggestion to da prawn for a new MC award. *Shrugs.

    I gotta vote for a Muppaphone...because that could stand for pain!
  17. Fragglemuppet

    Fragglemuppet Well-Known Member

    Yeah, I like that. At first I thought, "well, we have
    :eek: ," but that's not quite the same thing, so I would say a muppaphone would be good for "in pain".
    I think Mokey might also be nice, possibly for "tranquil".

    Um, Ed, what did you mean?

    Heh... Go read through the 4th MC Awards nominations thread and you'll find out... Eventually...

    :coy: - Oh boy, this is so much fun! At least... I think it is. Gobo, what do you think?
    :smirk: - Wembley! Can't you just decide for yourself for once?
    :coy: - Umm... I don't think so...
